Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
When the Edimax EW-7811Un arrived, I was able to use the default Windows-10 and Mini CD-ROM to install the driver and support software; however, neither solution worked for longer than several minutes before failing. Most troubling was that the Edimax EW-7811Un “ALMOST” worked.
When I read the current product reviews, as they pertain to Windows-10, I realized that my experience was not unique and there were a number of unhappy people who ordered the Edimax EW-7811Un for use with Windows-10. In reviewing several USB WiFi solutions on Amazon, I noticed that the Windows-10 upgrades were more problematic. This could be caused by (1) older and slower hardware or (2) the Windows-10 upgrade image was not quite the same as a native Windows-10 image.
For several days I considered writing a scathing review while devising alternative solutions but kept returning to the fact that the software was almost on the cusp of working. Finally, I called the Edimax support number, expecting technical support Hades, only to be quickly connected with a knowledge support technician. When I described the problem, the technician indicated that the wrong software was being distributed for Windows-10 and provided guidance on where to find the correct software, which was not on the primary Edimax website. As Amazon doesn’t support the posting of URL’s, the following navigation is provided on where to find the correct software:
Navagation: edimax.us | support | download drives
On the “Driver & Manual Download” page, go to Section 7 and download the ZIP compressed driver EW-7811Un Win v188.8.131.52, which is the first entry in Section 7.
I used a tablet to download the file EW-7811Un_Windows_driver_v184.108.40.206.zip and then transferred the file to Windows-10 using a USB interface. Un-ZIP the file, using Windows-10, and then run the program “Setup”. This not a GUI and runs under a DOS shell, so just wait until it completes. As Edimax Support recommended, reboot your Windows-10 system, and you should be good to go!
A few off-the-cuff observations:
(1) A built-in laptop WiFi generally has a hidden and sometimes large antenna under the case. The Edimax may not work in WiFi marginal areas of your home. There are Edimax products with large external antennas but these will not have the small form factor of the Edimax EW-7811Un. If the connection is very poor the Edumax is flagged as “Turned Off” and you may have to use Windows-10 to re-enable the WiFi. This could be a bug!
(2) I noticed that the Edimax EW-7811Un sometimes appears to go to sleep. Turning Device “Power Management” OFF may correct that problem.
I have now run a four hour series of serious stress tests and, with the exception of marginal areas in my home, the Edimax EW-7811Un has performed well. I am giving this product “Five Starts” because of the good performance at a very affordable price point. Yes, Edimax’s software quality control was troubling in this case, but I would give their Technical Support “Six Stars” without a second thought.
Microsoft Windows-10 upgrade policy was highly innovative and has given new life to older hardware and after market upgrades such as the Edimax EW-7811Un. Edimax and Amazon have to do a better job of communicating the good news to their customers.

I used this on RPi 2 w/ 2A power and it works great with both Raspbian and OSMC. On OSMC, under Network, I had to enable adapter then do a scan to find my signal. On Raspbian it connected to my signal automatically from my previous settings I assume. On both OS I noticed the same IP which went something like 192.168.1.17 so on OSMC I switched to the option "Configure Network using DHCP" to choose a static IP I had been using before. Raspbian is a little more hands on in the static IP front and I figured as long as it does what it's supposed to I don't need to screw around with it right now. I have noticed quicker response time but nothing super significant.
Some people have complained about activity issues but as long as you use sufficient power (2A on B+ or Pi2) or a powered usb hub you should be fine. I'm not too sure but I've been using 2A since B+ because my HDD needs the extra power. On the B model I used a powered usb hub and a 1A power supply. My guess is if you use anything below 1A, if you use a hub or not, how many peripherals and whether you use a wired or wireless mouse + keyboard, you're gonna run into some problems. I know first time using the Pi I had issues but I worked through them and eventually got things running smoothly. Of course it's been three years now and hardware/software for the Pi keeps improving so we've got past a lot of hurdles.
Overall I was pleased by the "plugability" of this dongle. I was worried I'd run into trouble trying to get it connected to my signal after using my previous dongle. If you're starting out on Pi and have no Wi-fi, consider this one as it works as desired.

Not sure if that was due to frequency.
So i test the speed with both and my laptop 2.4GHz speed is 46.Read more
